Clusters Drive Design Simulation

IBM Cluster

As design challenges become more complex and time to product launches are reduced, it is important to understand how to use a cluster for simulation, as compared to just a single node. “HPC Clusters Drive Design Optimization” is an excellent introduction on how to get the most out of a compute cluster.

“SpaceX is designing a new, methane-fueled engine powerful enough to lift the equipment and personnel needed to colonize Mars. A vital aspect of this effort involves the creation of a multi-physics code to accurately model a running rocket engine. The scale and complexity of turbulent non-premixed combustion has so far made it impractical to simulate, even on today’s largest supercomputers. We present a novel approach using wavelets on GPUs, capable of capturing physics down to the finest turbulent scales.”
